You are a bigger, braver man than me JP. My wife likes to threaten each year that we are going to go but we never do....thank (_______insert your deity of choice) that we don't.
It's insanity! I would rather pay a litle more than endure that madness.:%:%

No it isnt worth it all for me anyways. The few idiots that cause the issues would do nothing more then get somebody a ride to the hospital, and me a ride too county jail. I dont tolerate fools!!!

I ALMOST went out this morning with my family . . . then I decided NOT TO! :c

My Sister sends me texts, updating me on how crowded things are.

I am sitting here, hoping that a nice package arrives from Stuhrling! :)

My wife went out all night to do the shopping. She saved about $50. I just laughed. $50!! She's a sucker every year to this scam. I think she likes the thrill of the deal. I guess I'm the same way when it comes to shopping for watches online. The only good thing is that I don't have to fight the lines online. It just takes longer to download because of all the traffic on the sites. By the way I found no good deals on the Black Friday sales when it came to watches.

Well Jack, you are somewhat of a saint to concurr to your wife's wishes on that one Bro. Mass hysteria, but not anything surprising. I just don't get it how so many people are willing to deal with that kind'a craziness!!

Me......... I won't even stand in line for 20 minutes at a restaurant to get a table. I'd rather do take out!! JMO. Ya gotta have a certain kind'a personality to deal with those scenerios and if you're "A" as I and some others here are (you know who you are..... LOL) it just ain't gonna happen!!!
